Abomination again

I briefly discussed what the Lucan Jesus could have meant in describing the conduct of the Pharisees as abomination. In reading Revelation I recognized that the author explains in three separate verses what he means by abomination. In chapter 21 verse 8 we read: “But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, as for murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.” Later in verse 27 we read: “But nothing unclean shall enter it, nor any one who practices abomination or falsehood, but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life.” And finally in the verse 15 of the 22nd chapter we read: “Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderers and idolaters, and every one who loves and practices falsehood.”
